Christmas Songs you probably won’t hear on the radio – Part 2 – ‘The Ballad of Big Red’ by Pop Machine

Another song that hasn’t received the accolades it should – this ditty by Pop Machine entitled ‘Big Red’. I thought crossing the country CB genre with the holidays would be an interesting mix. Scott Mercer belts out the vocals better than C.W. McCall, and the theme of saving Christmas reverberates for all to enjoy, with Al, Scott and Dave providing the melodic symphony behind him.

    Thanks, as usual. This was probably our favorite Xmas song that we ever did. This came off better than “Skanta Claus,” in which my bad rasta accent was called out for sounding like Bela Lugosi.

    Note the references to Rudolf, “Year Without A Santa Claus” and Clement Moore.

    And yes, I know that “Oakies” are people, not mountains. We figured that out, but we just figured, eh, leave it.
